"The Holiday" art show in Waggoner Library

  The HolidayAn escape into the everyday
An art show at Trevecca Nazarene University
Opening April 15

A 10-year-old's birthday party, a couple's embrace, a woman's toil in domesticity, life on the street in Delhi—all are expressions of the everyday, the commonplace, and the holidays that can be found in the images that capture them. 

Photographers Elizabeth Streight and Sarah Hearld invite you to explore two very different worlds and the correlations between them in photographs that range from affectionate portraits to psychologically challenging images.
Mothers and Daughters by Sarah Hearld

This traveling exhibition will make its second stop April 15-May 15 at TreveccaNazareneUniversity, just following the launch of the new J.V. Morsch Center for Social Justice, offering a multidisciplinary program of study created for students who want to make a lifelong commitment to community and civic responsibility. The photographic works on display reflect this initiative as they explore both joy and fear that exists both at home and abroad.


Hearld will show photographs of street children and the humanity of the streets themselves in
Delhi, India. In October 2008, Hearld traveled to India to work with Street Children through an organization called Project Concern International.
Holy Mother by Elizabeth Streight

Streight, a student in Trevecca’s graduate psychology program, explores her own immediate American environment in her photography, capturing our needs for human connection as well as the universal sweetness, sanctuary, and joys of daily life.

Nashville-based photographers Elizabeth Streight and Sarah Hearld are pleased to present their exhibition at Trevecca’s Waggoner Library, April 15-May 15. An opening reception will be held on Wednesday, April 15, from 4:00-5:00 PM.
